P+ Sustainable

P+ introduces as the first labour market pension fund the extra sustainable investment product, P+ Sustainable. P+ Sustainable is targeted members who prioritise extra sustainability-focused choices in their investments. You will get a letter in e-Boks when you can choose P+ Sustainable.

What is P+ Sustainable?
P+ Sustainable is a part of the P+ Life cycle universe. It is a market rate product that adjusts the risk as you approach retirement. This means that the risk is high when you are young, and it is gradually reduced as you approach your retirement age. This way you can expect a higher return the first years of your savings period, and at the same time you will experience fewer fluctuations as you approach retirement.

Increased focus on sustainability
Your pension in P+ already includes a high level of responsible investments. Our policy for responsible investments applies across our investment universe - and so do our ambitious climate targets. And we focus on climate, environment, human rights and governance conditions when we invest. 

P+ Sustainable is targeted members who prioritise increased focus on responsibility and sustainability in their investments. 

Sustainable frontrunners
With P+ Sustainable we target to make your pension savings carbon neutral already in 2030. You will get more climate friendly investments, and an even bigger part of your investments will be placed in sustainable frontrunners.

Deselections
We deselect a number of companies and sectors completely in P+ Sustainable. This applies among other things to weapons, tobacco, alcohol and fossil fuels.

Active ownership
We are less patient with our active ownership in P+ Sustainable. If the companies do not show progress, we will more promptly deselect the companies and exclude them from the portfolio.   

Development with time
When we place stricter demands on sustainability, we deselect some investments. Accordingly, P+ Sustainable includes less equities than our standard product. P+ Life cycle includes approx. 2,500 equities, while P+ Sustainable only includes approx. 500 especially selected equities. 

The illiquid part of the portfolio (e.g. investments in unlisted equities, infrastructure, real estate and forest) will at first be consistent for both products. The target for P+ Sustainable is with time to become even more focused on responsibility and sustainability for the illiquid part of the portfolio.

Comparative expectations to risk, costs and return
